CSIR-NIN expresses inability to offer PG course in nutrition

The postgraduate certificate course in nutrition (PGCNN) will not be conducted for the academic year 2024

The Indian Council of Medical Research-National Institute of Nutrition (ICMR-NIN) has expressed its inability to conduct the Nutrition PG certificate course for the year 2024.

In a statement released from the ICMR-NIN by Dr M. Maheshwar, Scientist F and Head of the Department of ET Division, categorically informed that the postgraduate certificate course in Nutrition (PGCNN) will not be conducted for the academic year 2024.

“Every year the CSIR-NIN conducts a PG certification course every year, for which the admission process begins from the last week of October month. However, this year most of the teaching faculty for the course who are well-experienced senior scientists are engaged in an important time-bound Pan India Research Project.  In view of this, it is difficult to arrange for the teaching faculty to teach the nutrition course and therefore the CSIR-NIN has decided not to conduct the Nutrition PG Certification course for the 2024 academic year,” Informed Dr. M. Maheshwar.

With this unfortunate decision by the NIN, the aspiring candidates who were looking forward to taking the Nutrition course at the prestigious National Institute of  Medical Research and Nutrition have expressed their displeasure.
